Emotional intelligence isn't just a fancy buzzword that psychologists use; it's much more than that. More than two decades of research on this topic provide a solid body of evidence that shows its impact on all life spheres.

MEIQ-R7 is the result of a series of large-scale research studies conducted by PsychTests since 1996 when the first version of the test was released.

The assessment is based on the mixed model of EI, assessing four core EI abilities, broken down into twenty-two subfactors, and seven additional moderating factors to complete the picture.
